Bunny Puppet Notes

There are two ways to use this craft that come to our mind.

First, you can make and use it for springtime. If you choose this option, you’ll likely want to pick a realistic rabbit color like gray, white or a shade of brown.

Kids can learn about springtime, flowers, animals and the changing seasons and then make this rabbit craft.

Second, you may want to use this bunny craft for Easter. When you make this into an Easter bunny craft, you can choose any shade of color for the fur that you’d like!

We went with soft blue, purple and pink but the choice is yours. If you’re making this Easter craft with a few kids it would be cute to have them put on a puppet show with their new toys.

However you decide to make this paper bag bunny, we think the kids will enjoy it!
